for am in moscow i met a very good to have you with us our top story this hour protests against ukraine shelving any you integration deal has been going on for more than a week and happening in the country's capital as we speak these are peaceful scenes but police dispersed one rally with tear gas stun grenades and buttons on saturday demonstrators want the president to resign after he said no to europe or he's like sarah chefs' he has more from kiev. during the week e of central square was the stage of the mass protest of those supporting your integration and opposing president acknowledges decision not to sign the euro association deal in vilnius it is no longer the case right police now controlling the area during the night several hundred policemen came here and dispersed the crowd and eyewitnesses say that the dispersal was rather violent more than thirty
people were arrested and more than forty had to be hospitalized with different injuries the right police cordoned off the area not letting anyone inside the square and while the opposition is still contemplating the next move people are literally enraged with what happened this night know what he actually expected that this rally would be dispersed especially considering that for the last three or four days it was very very peaceful and no clashes no violence was reported the fact is that many grayness thousands tens of thousands that have been protesting against the coach's decision i talked to some of them and i realize that not all of them were actually aware of what they were protesting against italy. greece. spain. portugal. similar picture notes are deceiving well
a number of european countries has been protesting against brussels policy ukraine is probably the only one where people are taking to the streets in tens of thousands to support the idea of your integration in the thing yet we deserved to be near a guy shoes to be the deal would have allowed us to get better education in europe but this was not about being in the e.u. joining the union was not even on the table the two hundred page blueprint of the agreement never said anything about a visa free regime and we are hugely isn't about that my wife can go to poland and buy a lot of food for just ten her even though which is just over a dollar that's twice as much as i can buy here for. a hundred degrees. but the government was concerned that ukraine's domestic products would be swamped by cheaper goods the worst case scenario could have been factory closures and a catastrophe unemployment rate and brussels was offering no compensation for any potential economic losses and despite that ukraine's leadership has hinted a deal may still materialize in march next year that would mean
a longer winter on the streets for the angry crowds who are refusing to go home they want the president's head before they do. reporting from kiev ukraine. has become the center of the protest movement but staunchly pro e.u. leval of isn't far behind opposition activists from the country's western city plan on joining protesters in the capital kiev meanwhile wants the courts to ban mass demonstrations in the center of the city until the start of next year european union officials spoke out against what they call excessive use of force by police during the rallies of a political commentator alexander cross of thinks it's hypocritical because of how some e.u. nations handled their own protests. it's very weird for that to hear that the european union leaders and especially the people in brussels condemning the ukrainian government for using the police to disturb the two to deal with the demonstrates is and if i can tell you in any of those countries and europe brit
greedy spirit to go eat their knee you name it police deal very roofless sleep with will demonstrate this especially if these demonstrations against the austerity which is imperialist on these nations by brussels and for these same people to go and tell the ukrainian government that they are heavy handed with their demonstrate this is just hypocrisy. ukraine's presidential elections coming in early two thousand and fifteen and the e.u. plans to revisit the agreement sometime during that year he have says it wasn't offered much economic support from the e.u. but the block has stated that its position it won't change our case paul scott takes a look at how the deal fell apart. a moment of power allowed access to the ukrainian president viktor yana cold which comes face to face with e.u. leaders for the first time since stilling one historic trade deal the whole thing caught on camera. i. think.
it's clear that he has decision to hold for seedings has rankled elite is flowing ease of negotiations the e.u. sense is outside the us we have to set aside short political calculations. and we may not give in to external pressure know the least from russia on a cause that says the financial deal also isn't large enough to prevent damage to ukraine's flailing economy of course neither ukrainian businesses nor the government have this amount of money or will have any time soon that's why ukraine is not ready to take responsibilities he's not capable of fulfilling yet knowing so where does this leave the situation ukraine's proposals for trying not to hold
talks with russia were rejected by the e.u. or brussels finances may not allow them to increase the offer to kiev look at the european union massive run called employment throughout the course of the entire union they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco realistically the only thing the european union can try to do is keep blame storming anybody russia who cares because the european union is ultimately falling apart at the same so a you depart vilnius contemplating what might have been despite coaching president on a coach they simply seemed unable to offer him a deal that was tempting enough scots vilnius lithuania. not just ukraine's government that wasn't sold on prospects for the e.u. more young people in the bloc are joining far right movements which are often seen
as offering an alternative to brussels policies on saturday many took part in the we are the youth conference in the e.u. capital activist ruben rossiya participated in the gathering and says what he thinks is behind the rise of the far right within the union. in italy greece spain and portugal finding a job is not that easy these days so of course people go looking specially young people go looking and searching for solutions and i think that there are some movements that can give these solutions to the problems of today that the capitalist and liberal system has cost the government over the european union that they totally don't care about the jobs of young people so we can see that people are looking for alternatives we can not say that it's a fact a nationalist revolution we can just say that it's very logical thing to happen it's a logical thing when people are left behind as they start to organize themselves
and if they start to think. the one time obey detention center designed to hold america's most dangerous prisoners could have been the source of spies for the cia according to several reports the u.s. had been recruiting agents there since the early days of the war on terror the double agents were promised not only freedom and safety but also cash payments and exchange for providing the u.s. with valuable intelligence from abroad the process of recruitment and training apparently carried out in secret cottages not far from the camp designed to feel more like hotel rooms than prison cells dozens of inmates reportedly offered jobs that only a handful agreed on top of most former chief prosecutor colonel morris davis says that the more guilty you were the greater the odds of being sought out to work as an agent. i would assume like in many organized crime cases sometimes you got to make a deal with the devil to try to get someone further up the food chain i can tell you call some consternation from my prosecutors because in some cases we are asking
them to prosecute people for war crimes and they're saying way that you want to prosecute the lieutenant at this level but we've let is colonel go we've created this kind of paradox of guantanamo where if you are a big enough fish you potentially get a free ticket home in a wad of cash to take with you if you can still get prosecuted and if you're in that lower category the people who have been cleared you're still at guantanamo and the tensions of the more guilty you or may have been better for you. they're concerned about your privacy online be sure that you aren't alone london playing host to crypto festival an annual event and teaching people how to evade online surveillance and surf the net anonymously. when you go past the sign this is one twenty with a line through it the gloves are off baby you can drive you can really add government is off your back in germany. germany is famous autobahns could soon face restrictions from the e.u. much to the displeasure of local drivers this and more after

autobahn and this is already very limited. and for some it's a clear indicator of the european commission overtaking should not see the problem at the moment is that many of those rules are being made by the commission and are not being subject to democratic accountability in the european parliament and that seems to me is is the source of a lot of the frustration and tensions in countries a decision on whether to move ahead with the idea is expected in the new german drivers however have already made up their minds it will kill the joy of driving. i am against speed limit it will cost those jobs but all the wall be will not allow that to happen people will fall asleep at that speed the whole reason we built beautiful roads was to drive on them properly it's going to be a tough one for the e.u. to come to. germans that their speed she'd be in the hands of brussels so till. i
